Attendance assemblies were held the first week back after Easter. All children who achieved 100% attendance were presented with a certificate, wristband, badge and prize. Children who achieved between 97 and 99.9% attendance were also presented with a certificate and badge.
Some children had managed to achieve 100% attendance for the autumn and spring term, including some nursery children, meaning they have not had a day off school since starting in September! An amazing achievement, well done.

Magic Mondays and Terrific Tuesdays - You've got to be in to win!
If children have attended every day for a week they record their name on a raffle ticket and place it in a class attendance box. In assemblies on a Monday or Tuesday one name is selected for each year group to win a special prize. If you aren't in school on that day you don't get a prize. Favourite prizes are Shopkins stationary, Superhero pencil cases and books by David Walliams.
We open the school gates at 8.30am, children come into school to read or chat with a friend. Staff are all available from 8.30am onwards. The school gate closes promptly at 8.45am, our new school clock is helping us keep to time. In classes the registers are called. Any child arriving after 8.45am is recorded as late.
Late arrival and collection policy June 2019
We award weekly attendance certificates for classes with the highest attendance and termly badges, prizes and certificates.
If your child is ill we request you contact the school office in person or by telephone. We can authorise most absences if we have a valid reason. If we don't hear from parents and their child is not present we will telephone and may home visit.

We discourage parents from taking children out of school for hoildays and visits abroad in term time and follow the local authorities Leave in Term Time guidance. We submit cases to the local authority for the issuing of fixed penalty fines.
In 2017-2018 there were 64 fixed penalty fines against parents who took their children out of school in term time.
